BroDeal said:The only good thing that can be said about Monster Quest is that it is much much better than UFO Hunters. Neither show solves jack squat. Monster Quest basically gives a summary of a legendary creature along with some very sketchy "evidence" pointing to its existence. Said evidence often consists of a redneck who might have seen it in between six packs.
UFO Hunters takes the cake when it comes to giving weight to the flimsiest of evidence while pretending the investigation is based on science. I thought TV had hit rock bottom until I recently caught an episode of Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory.
There are a whole bunch of Ghost Hunter, Ghost Lab, etc shows that do this too. The funniest one is Ghost Hunters International, where they go into these reportedly haunted castles in Europe and central Asia and continually order - in English - the ghost to show himself, and then produce a supposed captured voice phenomenon of said ghost saying spooky things - again in very good modern English. Usually the ghost just says something along the lines of "get out," which I guess means that even the dead have no patience for obnoxious American tourists.
